Who are we?

We are a unique interdisciplinary grouping of experts without parallel in the UK, dedicated to fostering research into child mental health and the application of that expertise to children with physical health problems. We bring together expertise in chronic illness, rare diseases, neurodevelopmental conditions and brain disorders.

What do we mean by mental health?

We use a very broad definition of “Mental Health”, which includes work related to understanding the brain and mind, and conditions such as dementia, depression and schizophrenia.

·Bringing researchers whose work touches on mental health issues together
·Sharing mental health funding opportunities
·Organising seminars on paediatric mental health science
